Biggest box office flops of 2013
For every "Frozen" and "Fast & Furious 6" in 2013 there was a "Fifth Estate" or "47 Ronin."
It was a year of record revenue for Hollywood, with big-budget sequels such as "Iron Man 3," "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" and "Despicable Me 2" at the front of the pack.
Studios also came out with a few movies that cost a fortune to make and market -- and went nowhere.
As the year comes to a close, it looks like Disney's "The Lone Ranger" will lead the list of losers after costing more than $200 million to produce. Here are some of the the year's whopping disappointments. Notice, there are no sequels in this group.
